Maybe it's because I got such a late start to the season, but here I am in the beginning of February, with about 6 projects I want to get moving on before the end of the winter.  (These are not them.)   And I'm woefully aware that in knitting time, I'm already working on April.  I'm completely torn - do I get going on the spring things or try to bang out the last winter ones?  The compromise so far is a crazy mix of spring and winter knits on the needles at the same time, with a sneaking suspicion that they are not ALL going to make it.  So, to my Australian and New Zealander friends, get ready, because I'll be putting out the tweeds in May for you.  Or, maybe I'm looking at it all wrong and should be considering myself extra prepared for Next Fall. 

Regardless, these three projects are almost, almost, almost ready to go, and will show up on Ravelry in the next month or so.   Photos will be taken this weekend, and with any luck, the purple one will post next week.

For anyone wondering, the next drinks on the menu are Chambord,  St. Germain, and Vodka Lemonade.  In that order.

Some of us have to get started pretty early to have things done by fall/winter, so there is nothing wrong with a spring pattern release! Bring them on!!

I personally am still knitting winter-type things with the exception of a single summer top. I'll probably be knitting this until June. I'd go with the winter knitting.

The type of weather we're having on the east coast of the US is definitely not conducive to winter knitting but I'm ignoring that and am determined to continue with my woolly WIPs. I agree with Seanna Lea -- keep going with your winter knits!

Go with prepared for next fall!! I'm still thinking we are going to get hammered at some point and will need the tweed and heavy wool....I just hope it's not april when that happens:)

Thea, you are amazing! I definitely vote for super-prepared for next fall. Make sure you do what you need to keep things fun.

I was the lucky winner of the pattern and yarn draw for Drambuie. I can't believe it! I love the pattern, love the yarn, and am so looking forward to the knitting.

You rock and your designs rock!

Yay Sarah-Hope, how funny that you were the winner! I'm glad :-) You'll love that yarn.... and thanks for the kind words. Your hat pattern is still my fave one ever, and Zoe is wearing Maya's old one this winter....

Excited to see what you have in store for us. And for the record, I'll take tweed in one of your designs any month of the year. Same goes for spring designs. Like you said, it's really just a head start!
